The global industrial lubricants market size reached US$ 65.1 Billion in 2022. Looking forward, IMARC Group expects the market to reach US$ 81.5 Billion by 2028, exhibiting a growth rate (CAGR) of 3.7% during 2023-2028. Rising product utilization in the power generation industry, increasing demand for bio-based lubricants, and increasing industrial automation to improve operational performance represent some of the key factors driving the market.
Industrial lubricants refer to various products, such as oils, fluids, and greases, used in industries to increase efficiency and boost the performance of machinery and equipment. They are manufactured using crude oil, tight oil, and various additives, such as antioxidants, viscosity index improvers, detergents, dispersants, anti-wear agents, and extreme pressure additives. Industrial lubricants are widely used in engines, turbines, air compressors, bearings, mold release, metalworking, gears, auxiliary equipment, hydraulics, food machinery, and heat transfer systems. They ensure machine reliability by reducing friction, wear and tear, and operating temperature in moving parts. Industrial lubricants provide shock absorption, minimize solid-to-solid contact, prevent corrosion, and offer sealant properties. They also prevent damage, increase productivity, and enhance equipment service life. As a result, industrial lubricants find extensive applications across the power generation, automotive, food processing, textile, and manufacturing industries.
Industrial Lubricants Market Trends:
The rising product utilization in the power generation industry is one of the primary factors driving the market growth. Industrial lubricants are widely used in coal, steam, and gas power plants to enhance equipment reliability, lower operating costs, extended machine life, and protect turbines, generators, boiler feed pumps, and mills from extreme conditions. In addition to this, the widespread product utilization in renewable energy generation, such as wind, hydroelectric, and nuclear power plants, is acting as another growth-inducing factor. Furthermore, the widespread product adoption in the automotive industry to protect and improve the functionality of brakes, transmission, engine, gears, wheels, and other components in passenger cars, buses, trucks, cranes, bulldozers, concrete mixers, and commercial vehicles, is providing an impetus to the market growth. Additionally, the introduction of bio-based industrial lubricants manufactured from biodegradable feedstocks that minimize adverse environmental impact, reduce dependency on petroleum-based raw materials, and offer superior viscosity, low volatility, and high-pressure performance, is positively influencing the market growth. Moreover, the extensive utilization of industrial automation and robotic processing in packaging, food processing, and manufacturing industries is facilitating the product demand to ensure proper maintenance and lubrication of equipment and machinery. Other factors, including rapid industrialization, rising infrastructural development activities, the implementation of various government initiatives to promote the adoption of bio-based lubricants, extensive research and development (R&D) activities, and the widespread product utilization in the marine and textile industries, are anticipated to drive the market growth.
